The Portable Air Cooler of Requelizza is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Waughin Jarth with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, anti-smoking policies, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.342 billion Requelizzians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Requantice. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Requelish economy, worth 399 trillion Platinas a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 119,622 Platinas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Farting etiquette is taught in schools, gun-wielding gangsters sometimes deal death from as far as ten paces away, students consistently complain that the wi-fi ate their homework, and the housing market has collapsed like an overbaked Brancalandian souffle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Requelizza's national animal is the Blue Hedgehog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Corn Kernel Allocation.

Requelizza is ranked 9,669th in the world and 31st in Thaecia for Most Developed, scoring 90.44 on the Human Development Index.
